    Pete Carroll chokes in the big game. Nothing new here. Pete is great running up the scores on inferior opponents. His true colors always come out at the end.

    This is the person who almost singlehandedly destroyed the Pats.

    I've never really felt strongly one way or the other with Carroll, but the Pete Carroll face was out in full force at the end.

    WTF was he thinking burning that TO? Just poor poor gameday coaching.

    Not to mention the 3 ill-advised 4th & 1s. One paid off, but he should have kicked the 3 on both the early ones, and punted with 2 min to go. Just bad coaching.

    Seriously. The best was him blubbering through the question right after the game by the CBS reporter. He just had no excuse.

    What is he going to say?

    "Why did you call a timeout after Texas' final touchdown"

    "Well, Candy, we are simply unprepared as a coaching staff for these situations"

    I think it's alittle strong to say he chokes in the big game, you can argue last night, but he had won 2 straight Championships.

    Come on. I don't like Pete but the guy won 34 straight games and 2 straights national titles. To say that this was "the end" and his true colors finally came out is ridiculous. Why wasn't last year's Oklahoma title game where they beat the 2nd best team in the country by 50 "the end" too?

    As for the second point - singlehandeldly? There were some guys named Grier, Parcells, and Kraft who helped Pete get the pats where they were.

    Yup, two National Championships and almost another. Big choker.

    BTW, I don't like USC, but fact are facts and knee jerk is knee jerk.

    He didn't win 2 straight national championships. The first one was just the media poll, not the BCS championship. The NCAA might recognize both, but the schools don't. LSU was the national champion that year, period.

    If you (USC in this case) say something enough, people believe it.

    Thats like if the Pats dont win the super bowl this year, someone saying BB is still a loser coach, and Brady is just a 6th round system qb. How does 1 game whipe out what had come before it. But I will say, the fact that carroll never adjusted to the qb draw play is his fault.

    Except that Belichick hasn't had by far the best talent in the league like Petey has had.

    Best talent in the league? I assume you are referring to the trojans and not the Carrol era Pats.

    In any case I take exception because the Trojans defensively are not even top 5 talent wise on the defensive side of the ball.

    19 seconds left, that timeout really doesn't make any difference. You have two plays left, three plays tops to get into scoring position. If your players know what they're doing, they'll attack the field from all angles, but Reggie Bush ran out of bounds rather than trying for another 10 yards, a very bad decision.

    Yep Pete won 34 straight games but is a "choker" and Charlie can't call offensive plays worth a S**T, but has three SB rings....funny world.
